Description:
Memorials, plaques, and monuments dedicated to the Korean War.
Expanded Description:
Memories of the Korean War are sometimes lost amongst all the other bigger and more recent wars, however this war is just as significant as the others. This war lasted from 1950 to 1953.

This category is for marking any monuments, memorials, and plaques dedicated or commemorated to the Korean War. Some of these memorials include other wars to save on costs, so even Korean War memorials shared with other wars are allowed.

Here are links to some memorials erected for the Korean War:
Washington DC Korean War Memorial
Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial
South Dakota Korean War Memorial
Philadelphia Korean War Memorial
Illinois Korean War Memorial
Korean War Children's Memorial in Washington

Here is a website dedicated to the Korean War:
KoreanWar.org

We are sorry, but this category is not for waymarking individual graves

 

Instructions for Posting a Korean War Memorials Waymark:

Please provide as much of a detailed description of the special place you are waymarking. At a minimum use the text located on any plaques or pamphlets pertaining to the location. Help others know about the memorial, its history, and purpose.

At least one photograph is required of the item you are marking, but more are preferred. If the item has a plaque or writing, a close up photograph of the plaque is required. This close up must be readable in the picture. If it is a large plaque, you may want to take additional photographs.

Do not request additional visiting requirements above what is required by this main category.

 

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

Please submit a photo(s) taken by you of your visit to the location (non-copyrighted photos only). GPS photos are also accepted with the location in the background, and old vacation photos are accepted. If you are not able to provide a photo, then please describe your visit or give a story about the visit.

If you have additional information about the memorial which is not listed in the waymark description, please notify the waymark owner to have it added, and please post the information in your visit log.
